On the eve of Judge Neil Gorsuch's confirmation vote to the U.S. Supreme Court, Republican leaders in Pennsylvania gathered in Harrisburg to show their support.
From the Republican Party of Pennsylvania:
HARRISBURG — Earlier today, GOP leaders Val DiGiorgio and Dave Feidt participated in Pennsylvania’s Gather For Gorsuch held in the State Capitol Rotunda. Their on-the-record statements from the event can be found below:
"Senate Democrats — including Bob Casey — are thwarting the will of the majority. Pennsylvanians have had enough of Senator Casey's obstructionism and hypocrisy. Keystone State voters chose President Trump to pick the next Supreme Court Justice, and by nominating Judge Gorsuch he picked a proven mainstream conservative.
"In joining Senate Democrats in their partisan filibuster of Judge Gorsuch, Senator Casey has made a decision to engage in political grandstanding instead of doing what's in the best interest of his constituents. Pennsylvania voters will remember this obstructionist approaching to governing and hold him accountable at the ballot box in 2018.”
— Val DiGiorgio, Chairman, Republican Party of Pennsylvania
“Judge Neil Gorsuch has earned praise from leaders on both sides of the aisle. Most notably, he has earned the unanimous support of the American Bar Association. As a lawyer myself, I understand the significance of receiving unanimous support of the Bar Association — it is truly a testament to his credentials.
"Unfortunately, Senate Democrats including Pennsylvania’s Bob Casey, have decided to toss credentials aside in favor of petty partisan politics. Senator Casey is standing with the far left of his Party in opposition to Judge Gorsuch simply because 'he isn’t their guy.’"
— Dave Feidt, Chairman, Republican Party of Dauphin County
